A student’s guide to healthy natural hair

Nandipha Dilla

Every week Perdeby takes a look at something you should have learned at school to assist you in day-to-to life. This week, we take a look at how to maintain healthy natural hair.

For many girls, taking care of natural hair seems like a daunting task. Not only is it seemingly high maintenance and prone to damage, the products our hair needs are often expensive and inaccessible to the average girl. While this guide may be a foundation to better taking care of your hair, no one knows your hair’s needs better than you do. So listen to your hair and make the right adjustments to accommodate it, you will feel all the better for it.

No-gym fitness

Rebecca Woodrow
Life is costly, and a gym membership is one of those tricky expenses where, technically, it is a need and a luxury, because it helps you maintain your health but at a cost that can’t always be validated if consistent and frequent visits take place. So, straight from one of First Year Spread’s greatest triumphs, Perdebybrings you No Gym Fitness.

Stretching is key to not hurting yourself or feeling the fires of Hell in your muscles.

Do not strain yourself because injuries occur easily. 

Wear appropriate clothing, comfort is king.

Feel the burn, but listen to your body. It’s the only one you have so try to be nice to it.

So, when my lovely editor asked if a member of the Online Content team could cover this night market on the same Friday an issue was being completed I was happy to help. Also, this journalist is night biased and market biased.
